NICAR22 Hands-On: First Python Notebook

You must be logged in to purchase this item.

Description

Thursday, March 3, 9 am - 5 pm ET

Cost: $70

Instructors:

  • Ben Welsh, Los Angeles Times
  • Andrea Suozzo, ProPublica
  • Kae Petrin, Chalkbeat
  • Melissa Lewis, Reveal/CIR

Kae Petrin, Melissa Lewis, Andrea Suozzo and Ben Welsh guide you through a six-hour, hands-on investigation of money in politics.

You will learn:

  • Just enough Python to execute an analysis with pandas, one of the most popular open-source tools for working with data tables
  • How to record, remix and republish your work using Jupyter, a browser-based tool emerging as the standard for reproducible research
  • And how these tools can increase the speed and veracity of your journalism.

Along the way you’ll conduct your own investigation of California campaign donors using the California Civic Data Coalition’s open-source database archive.

Prerequisites: If you've tried Python once or twice, have a good attitude and know how to take a few code crashes in stride, you are qualified. We want you.

Pre-registration is required and seating is very limited to allow for social distancing. Laptops will be provided.
